Presenter:  Kirk Astroth, Director Arizona 4-H Youth Development

Workshop Description:

The 8 critical elements of positive youth development have served us well for the past 15 years. However, this list was never meant to be inviolate and newer research suggests that interdependence is just as important as independence and the other elements in developing youth toward positive outcomes and trajectories. This overview will share why interdependence is so important and how it can be nurtured in 4-H programs--with practical examples and applications related to 4-H club work and the National 4-H Model of Recognition. 

Depth of Knowledge:  Introductory
